Exploring from your holiday apartment in Sorano
Sorano clings to its hilltop crag with a timeless confidence. It has been a strong defensive position since before Roman times and has been fought over many times. There are numerous castles and fortifications, such as Montorio Castle, Castell’Ottieri and Montebuono Castle and the splendid fortress of the same name built by the Orsini family. Interesting architecture is everywhere and the whole area is referred to as the archaeological park of the “Citta del Tufo.” This contains the most important Etruscan sites and cliff settlements in all of Italy. The surrounding area abounds with vineyards, olive groves and rich farmland, providing some great wine and local produce for the hungry and thirsty traveller. With stunning views of the local countryside, Sorano is one of the most arresting towns in all of Tuscany.
